Our solutions
FieldApp

  • Our FieldApp means people on the ground can identify and solve problems to improve their lives.
  • The data and solutions they find can be scaled up so everyone benefits.
  • You decide the questions that need answering: users give you data and come up with solutions.
  • Our method means users take ownership of solutions, collecting data in the process.
  • We produce reports tailored to you, with the rich sustainability data you need.
  • You benefit from an engaged workforce to implement successful solutions from the grassroots.

  • Results: All pilots flagged up important safety issues:
    - 73% of users reported test kits not present when needed
    - Over 400 reports of infected patients not being separated

Quote from our CEO Fredrik Galtung in The Guardian’s long read "Is fair trade finished?"

“If Fairtrade producers could show that their farmers were 10 or 20 years younger on average ... that would be a massive advantage. But we’re unable to see all this.”

In a podcast with Break the Chain, Fredrik spoke about inputs and outputs versus outcomes and impact.

Fredrik was interviewed by The New Ism, talking about how bottom-up measurement and empowerment is key in sustainability.

Quote from Mining Weekly on TrueFootprint’s mining industry Scorecard:

“governments, investors and customers have no way at present of assessing the effectiveness of key business sustainability investments, which means that some companies are not getting credit for the work they are doing and the social and economic value they create.”
